    I love that sweater! And that blue is pretty much perfect. I know what you mean though, about wanting to be finished with a project. I recently set aside a cabled dress for gift knitting, and I was secretly just a little happy to stuff it away for later. Don’t tell! :)

    This is, without a doubt, going to be stunning on you!

    The real question is, do I have any projects that have made it on and off needles in a reasonable period of time? My two biggies are my Central Park Hoodie, which is going on a year and my nameless blue cardigan which is probably in the 3 or 4+ year range. Oh, the shame.

    Oh yes, plenty to finish off before the end of the year. I would like to start 08 on a fresh plate. So, am in the same mode of finishing off all that’s been lingering on. Happy knitting Lolly!

    The cables and color are so beautiful! But I know that feeling…my Ariann has been on the needles too long. I love the yarn, the pattern, but I just can’t seem to finish it!

    I could have written your post if you substitute pink picot camisole for your sweater. Thank you for venting what I think a lot of us are feeling!!

    I started the camisole last June, but due to gauge issues and due to the fact the top has to be re-designed for a better fit (which I’ve not done before), I keep stopping and starting each time I get stuck. I need to just sit down and knit through and stop worrying so much. It will be pretty when it’s done, but as you said, I just want to get it off the needles now (or hopefully before the end of the year). Sending lots of motivation your way!

    [...] course, I have a hoodie to finish [...]

    yes! I have an afghan that needs to be finished! It’s hanging over my head and driving me nuts. So I think I will make that a goal for the new year.

    I have a cabled hoodie (Central Park) that has been on the needles about 7 months. That’s the longest UFO that I have any hope of finishing. My longest knit UFO is my husband’s 1st (and only) handknit sweater. It’s Jesse’s Flames from SnB Nation. I started almost as soon as I learned to knit, about three years ago. I finished the front and back in a jiffy, but the intarsia stumped me. I picked it up again about a year ago, confident that I could do the intarsia, but I had to rip back all that I had done on the sleeves so far…which put me off a little bit. But more than anything, I had knit it with Wool-Ease, which isn’t too bad, but still a little acrylic-y for my taste.

    Ooooh – I have a jersey for my husband on the needles, and I reckon it’s been there for about 3-4 years! The colour comes off on my hands and everything else and is SO annoying. I wonder whether it’ll ever make it from my hands to his back!

    I have the print o’ the wave stole that has been on the needles for over a year. It’s made of a mohair yarn, and I know I’m going to need to do some before I get going again. Just putting it off for when I can really sit down, think about it, and be re-inspired. It’ll happen.
